50 Dynamic Tree Houses

These Arboreal Abodes Remind One of Their Childhood

— September 15, 2013 — Unique
Whether designed for housing, leisure or as luxurious accommodations for travelling guests, these dynamic tree houses make one long for the lost days of their childhood.

Following in past traditions, the arboreal abodes are built using local wood materials that are both durable, weather-proof and easy-to-find. These compact dwellings vary from suspended playhouses designed to impress one's inner child to elaborate millionaire mansions built with a modernized tree house vision in mind.

These dynamic tree houses use traditional wood materials in an unexpected and non-traditional way. The conceptual homes, hotels and kids' club houses aim to push design boundaries and limits by bringing one closer to nature. Bringing the outdoors into one's home, these contemporary arboreal abodes prove that anything is possible with a little imagination.
